I sent this to my mate earlier and he said: “When an artist can tear up a track that consists of someone clapping, you know he’s talented”. He’s right. How is Roots frontman Black Thought not recognised as one of the greats?
Lyrically the only people out now in the same league are Lupe, Mos Def and Pharoahe Monch (off the top of my head). They haven’t made 11 albums though. Black Thought has been committing lyrical slaughter for years. One day people will wake up and realise.
